Hello,
I have a win2003 server with one logical drive ( Raid 5 with 4 physical disks). In the windows disk management I can see one partion ( c:/) as primary partition and the rest of the space as unallocated. Can I use the disk management to create a new partition( say drive E).
Also I see that disk management shows there is no fault tolerence but the HP array config utility does. dskmgmt

Yes, from that console you can create a new simple/dynamic or mounted partition (depending on what your requirements are, though 'Simple' volume is probably what you'd need as the RAID etc is done via HP's utility). If you right click you will see the list of options - Format it and give it a drive letter and then you can use it as normal.

You won't see any of the RAID configurations on this utility as it's all done on a hardware level as you are using HP array config utility which is transparent on the actual OS, but it is still there providing you have the RAID setup correctly.

Hope this helps :)
